Carnival UNspirited.

Sail Date: October 2012
Destination: South Pacific
Embarkation: Sydney (Australia)

EMBARKATION.
* Well organised but should have rung alarm bells when we saw so many kids !!!!!
* Luggage was prompt delivery.
* Departure was very late. They should know how long it takes to load the ship.

CABINS.
* Just ordinary. Poor toiletries. Plenty of storage space.
* Cabin attendant was not the friendliest of people, not up to standard of previous cruise liners.

LIBRARY.
* Absolutely pathetic. Attended by the show staff (Dancers, etc.) Not computerised and books are hidden by computer terminals in front of book cases.

COMMUNICATION.
* Very poor.
* Still haven't seen the Captain and only heard him once give a ship's update.
* We had no idea where we were.
* Ship's navigation map was pathetic.

KIDS.
* Ran amok, yelling and shouting and generally disturbing what little peace could be found.
* No supervision by either ships staff or (in many cases) parents.

CASINO.
* How can kids be allowed More in the Casino??? and right at the tables.
* Is this not against the law?????

SECURITY STAFF.
* Conspicuous by their absence. They had it easy on this cruise.
* Why weren't they out controlling the kids????

DECK CHAIRS.
* No deck chairs on the promenade deck.

FOOD. (WHAT?????)
* The Nouveau was very good and staff excellent.
* Very poor in all other venues.

DRINKS AND BEVERAGES.
* Coffee was poor and served in PAPER!!!!!!CUPS at coffee shops.
* Alcoholic beverages were average cruise prices.

ENTERTAINMENT AND PRODUCTION SHOWS.
* Entertainment was very poor when compared to other cruises.
* Comedy Club was smutty.

ACTIVITIES.
* Nothing suitable. Mostly only Trivia. Not what we are used to.
* No guest speakers.

TENDERS AND ISLAND LANDING.
* Tendering was very good.
* Ship's arrival and departure times should be extended to allow more time ashore.

ON BOARD SHOPS.
* Clinique prices very good. (Wife Happy).

PHOTOS.
* Excellent. Best setup of any cruise we have been on.

CRUISE DIRECTOR (WHAT??????).
* Completely useless.

DISEMBARKATION PROCEDURE
* Excellent. Quickest we have ever gotten off a ship.

CRUISE REVIEW FORMS.
* None to be had. Are Carnival afraid of bad feedback????? Less

Cabin review: Carnival Spirit Balcony Verandah 7171

Cabin on a par with other cruise liners. Poor toiletries. Plenty of drawer and hanging space. Air conditioner very noisy.
